About the Owner
We are a married couple who fell in love with the island when we first visited in 1993 and have been back as much as possible since, normally at least once a year..
1 holidaymaker review
We have rented apartments in Playas de Fornells for over 15 years and never had cause to complain. We chose this apartment because of the stunning location and because there were just the two of us. When we arrived at the apartment we found that there was no kettle, the gas wasn't connected to the cooker and I was unable to connect it. The electric ring on the cooker didn't work nor did the oven. Someone from the management company came and managed to connect the gas but just two rings worked and the oven wasn't fixed either. The first morning the toilet wouldn't flush and the mixer tap on the bath didn't work, this was fixed the same day I might add. There were two free standing fans one didn't work, we were given a camping size electric kettle which didn't boil, the iron heated up and then refused to heat up again and the architrave around the bathroom door is held on by sellotape.
This apartment is just a tired old place but the price we paid isn't tired old place money. It didn't spoil our holiday because we don't spend much time indoors anyway but if we had been a family not knowing the area and with poor weather it would have been different.
The attitude of the owner was to just refer us to the management company who denied most of our complaints, gave no apology or further explaination.
Disappointing and definitely not recommnded
